Here are three of Guy Allen’s Sardina flies.

My friend Guy Allen is getting ready to depart (or may have departed already) on his annual trip to Baja and is planning on fishing this pattern. I invited Guy to join me recently and he kindly showed me how to tie this great fly. I hope you enjoy the video and that many more will follow this season.
